Microsoft has confirmed to us that Crackdown 3 is now targetting a new launch date, early in 2019.
Well there you go. Feb 19- no cancellations. More info at E3. Lets see if the delay can help spruce up the game's polish. Oh and the cloud. ;)
No cancellations. I wouldn't bet on that? after how many times? I loss the count
Can’t see why they would cancel it after pouring this much money and resources into the game.
you mean like fable legends and scalebound mandingo
Oh thank god, I was worried this game would come out soon..
Oh that's not a bad delay, almost would not even call it one.
Uh, wut? It's the second delay and it's delayed more than six months this time. Hopefully it's a good delay, but my interest is at zero now. At least it can only go up from there.
@Christopher From the last delay.lol Honestly was really looking forward to this when it was first announced, but over the years with seeing game play last year, it looks pretty bad, if anything the delay will be good for it. Time will tell.
I’m pretty sure no one cares about the cloud at this point.
They will when CD3 launches and proves that it works just fine.
I would like to think that too but people never cease to amaze me
Question, are they still releasing SP and MP separately?
Didn't think that was ever the case? Not sure though tbh
Oooh yeah, that was a thing I thought I heard a while back. It would be very interesting to see if they might be still doing that.
A delayed game is a good game! Right....?
Duke nukem, final fantasy... Not holding my breath at the moment.
I just hope they do a stress test first for the MP part
@ LiamKreptic The game was announced four years ago but it was obviously not delayed for four years. The devs didn't spend the entire four years working on the SP either, which isn't even being handled by the same team that is making the MP. Cloudgine was being created alongside the MP from the beginning, so CD3 helped Cloudgine prototype their engine. Furthermore, Septic was not supporting the game with quotes like, "It sure as heck needs the polish. I wonder if there is enough time to change it for the better. The visuals, animations, gunplay all need re-doing imo. But that cloud tech is what I'm looking at oh yes." Septic is clearly excited about the potential of the cloud...not the current state of CD3.
Give it a rest, the cloud tech has since sailed a long time ago, bring up something like that is irrelevant especially at this point of the generation. The xbox one x runs circles around the pro in terms of power, and cloud tech or no cloud tech will not change that.
I can't believe people is still talking cloud power lol Still waiting for Milo, too?
Nice, after 5 short years, the mighty crackdown 3 is finally confirmed to be unleashed in February 2019
i'm absolutely fine with it releasing in feb 2019 IF it turns out to be good and the cloud destruction works. If it turns out to be average after all that time then I'm going to be pretty pissed and if the cloud destruction doesn't work then Microsoft have flat out lied all these years. I really hope the can show something at e3 that looks much much better than the garbage from last year
I have zero interest in cloud destruction. Just give us a good game.
Even with this new delay this franchise will never be able to reach AAA status imo. It just doesnt have what it takes to do it.
I think you're putting too much faith in Sumo Digital - if I am not mistaken, they did both the last LittleBigPlanet and the LBP Kart racing game... and they were buggy messes, particularly the online components (most of the time in LBP3 you could not connect to anything - at least that was the case in my experience). The cloud won't do much if the devs are bad at online coding, which they've (Sumo Digital) proven to be the case in two games so far.
Well that's worrying. I'm more interested in the cloud tech tbh. I wish another studio could step in.
Well there you go. It was delayed despite what people were saying.
nobody was saying it wasn’t delayed, i personally was saying the delay could be good, this fall is packed and the extra time could polish it, much like days gone doing the same
Stop acting as if it wasn't the general opinion. Look how xboxers went into full defense mode the last two times delay rumors surfaced. http://n4g.com/news/2176622... Who made sure to disprove that piece that turned out to be accurate? And be sure to keep your foot on the gas because reverse speed is normally slower than forward. Microsoft delayed the game not because of RDR2 but because it will not do what they claimed. They can pull any sleight of hand they want at E3 and say, "Look its coming right after Christmas" and it won't impact holiday sales as much. If they had launched it this fall it wasn't sales they were concerned about but rather bad press.
